Often clients fail to make a claim for R&D tax relief because they are loss making and don’t think they can secure any cash back.  This is not the case.

Loss making companies can claim R&D tax credits, cash back from HMRC.  The value of the credit will depend on the regime the company falls under.

  • A loss making SME can secure a benefit between 14.5% and 33% of its R&D expenditure.
  • A loss making Large company or subsidised project can secure a benefit of 9.7% of its R&D expenditure.

Loss making SME companies also have the option of not surrendering the R&D loss but instead carrying the loss forward/backwards against profits. Our consultants gather a full understanding of your company’s past and future position maximising the benefit of the R&D claim.
